Art has been my life's focus and a necessary outlet for my creativity. From interior design to oil and acrylic painting, sculptures, paper crafts and clay, I have done it all. Moving into jewelry design was simply another step into what I like to call my “artistic evolution.”

My style has been described as the "bold look of elegance." With the use of organic and natural forms and textures, vibrant color, patinas and graphic designs, these “one of a kind” pieces can range from colorful and abstract to elegant and detailed. My designs include, but are not limited to, the use of gem stones, pearls, crystals, seed beads, metal, glass, wood, polymer clay, leather, and metal chains.

For me, everyday begins and ends with art. So, as the day draws to an end I rest well knowing that I have created something unique that brings joy and happiness to others.

Life is good indeed!
